At Sarika Ramroop's family camp at the Malabar Farms Estate in Manzanilla, children were playing, fishing with rod and net, swimming, and chilling on a raft, while adults were eating a variety of fish such as cascadura, wabeen, coscorub, pigeon peas, provision, pork, chicken and turkey.

The Plum Mitan resident said she had been coming to the camp nearly 12 years for Easter and they were looking towards harvesting oysters when the tide went down yesterday.

Ramroop said the campsite was a nice place, but there was one demerit; the people who were in charge of collecting the fees for entry to the camp braced people in a rough manner.

She said the staff did not know how to speak to people, they were charging $20 per person or $400 for a spot for five days at the seaside, but the attitude was a turn-off.

Nevertheless, Ramroop said her family and friends enjoyed themselves a lot.

The Sunday Guardian found out the hard way that some small cars can get stuck in the soft sand when exiting the venue, some people had to come out of their vehicles and push the cars out.

This elicited several complaints from some campers that the owners were not pumping money back to uplift the place if it was doing well financially.
